Bio

Grace Park is a Canadian-American actress best known for her role as Boomer (and the various iterations of Number Eight, a humanoid Cylon) in Battlestar Galactica, as well as Shannon Ng in the Canadian television series teen soap Edgemont.

Her performance in the season one cliffhanger of Battlestar Galactica garnered her a place in TV Guide's 100 Most Memorable Moments in TV History.

The series received a Peabody Award in 2006 and remained a critics' darling, rated one of television's best shows by Rolling Stone, TV Guide, The New York Times Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and Newsday.

Although the series concluded after four seasons in March of 2009, fans of Grace can look forward to Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which is scheduled to air November 2009 as a two-hour event. Consisting of newly filmed material and a compilation of clips from the TV show and miniseries, it will reveal the Cylons' plan.

Born in Los Angeles and raised in Canada, Grace received a degree in psychology from the University of British Columbia before turning her attention to film and television.

She was cast in the Jet Li film Romeo Must Die, quickly following that memorable role with appearances in The Dead Zone and The Outer Limits.

Most notably, she played the pivotal role of Shannon Ng on the CBC series Edgemont, while also guest starring on The Immortal, Jake 2.0, and Stargate SG-1. She also starred as Special Agent Liz Carver on the CBC television series, The Border.

In addition to her film and television work, Grace has expanded her range in the stage production of The Boys Next Door as Sheila, and has also starred in the independent feature West 32nd as Lila Lee.

Grace has been chosen as one of FHM Magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World and one of Maxim's Hot 100.

She starred as Akani Cuesta in the drama series The Cleaner from 2008-2009.

She currently stars as Kono Kalakaua in the police procedural television drama series Hawaii Five-0, since 2010.
